American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Oregon (ACLU)

BIPOC-Led Organization


The ACLU of Oregon works in courts, in the legislature, and in communities to protect and advance our civil rights and liberties. We work so our democracy can better serve all Oregonians. We aim to be a principled visionary – not only to respond to crises, but to create openings for the envisioning and creation of a more just, equitable, and caring Oregon.

Bottom Line for Portland

  1. The ACLU of Oregon is committed to protecting and advancing civil liberties and civil rights for all Oregonians. True democracy requires the voices of all community members and we center our work on those in Oregon who are historically disenfranchised and most impacted by systemic inequities.
  3. Our work continues to prioritize democratic participation and speech, immigrant and refugee rights, criminal justice reform, reproductive justice for all, and police accountability through litigation, legislative advocacy, and by fostering strong relationships with community members and coalition partners. Together, we are building a more just, equitable, and caring Oregon — for and by all of us.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

For the ACLU of Oregon to do the work of democracy, we must center the voices of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC), low-income, and other marginalized communities. We are committed to the ongoing transformation of ensuring our fundraising, legal, advocacy, education, and communication efforts are community-centered and led. We believe every person has inherent dignity and value. We seek to create real, not performative, strides towards public and community safety, holistic wellness, and community care through our shared values and democratic processes.
